Workouts - Last Week Today - June 12

picsart_05-01-02.25.10.jpg

This week's mileage was dismal.

I feel like I am in a slump... and I don't really like it!

I dug out my Jawbone and got it charged up so at least I could make sure that I was getting in at least 10k steps.

Sunday - Last day at deer camp with the hubs. We did a little hiking.

Monday I made it to the Goose's Acre Running Club social run for an easy 3.25.

Tuesday morning I work up with severe pain in my foot... it hurt to bend my toes, it hurt to walk.  I hobbled off to work and spent a lot of the day icing my foot at my desk.

Wednesday my foot felt better, but still a little rough around the edges... wasn't hobbling as much, but stiill iced it a bit.  Thursday morning it was feeling 100%, and good thing because the hubs and I headed to the mountains in Colorado to spend time with family.

Thursday - we spent the day in Denver walking around downtown before heading up to the mountains. I did get in 11,519 steps.

Friday - headed up to the mountains for Hot Sulfur days.  We sort-of camped with family there and enjoyed the festivities.  Logged 8.615 steps.

Saturday - we enjoyed more festivities at Hot Sulphur days and soaked in the hot springs.  I got in 13,705 steps.

Total miles = 3.25

2017 Chicago Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my second marathon... the Chicago Marathon. This is my 2017 Chicago Marathon Recap!



The week prior, the hubs decided he didn't want to go to Chicago... citing some pretty lame excuses.  I wasn't too worried about that as I am not afraid to travel on my own.



I flew into Chicago on Friday morning.  The plane from Houston seemed to be full of folks running in the marathon.  I sat by a young couple who were also running (his 1st marathon, her 7th).  After landing up in Chicago, I took the Orange Line into the city and checked into my hotel, then headed back out for some lunch and then to take in the Expo.
The Expo


The Expo was CRAZY! I retrieved my bib, shirt and wandered around for a bit.  I tried shopping in the Nike area, but after I was shoved a couple of times, I lost all interest.  With all the craziness, I decided I needed to find the Goose Island beer bus for a little sample.

I checked out several booths and then headed to the Runners World stage for the cour…

Brazos Bend 50k Recap

On April 7th, I ran my very first 50k at Brazos Bend 50.  The event was a Trail Racing Over Texas race located at Brazos Bend State Park outside of Needville, TX.  This is my Brazos Bend 50k recap.
Pre-race...
I had gone into Houston after work to pick up my race packet ahead of time... along with my bib and race shirt, they also had bonus swag, for this race it was Altra Gaiters.  Race day-eve brought me a little visitor.... yup, Aunt Flo decided to come for a stay. This definitely put a little twist in my plans.  I took off work a little early so that I could get dinner at a reasonable hour, my clothes laid out, and to bed early.  My race-day eve fueling was my lucky veggie burger and sweet potato fries at Bella Green.



After some thought I decided to wear my hydration vest to carry necessary supplies instead of my handheld.  Once I got home, I laid out my clothes, got my supplies ready and headed to bed.  My wake-up call was 3am!

It was tough figuring out what to wear.  The forecast cal…

2018 Houston Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my third marathon... the Houston Marathon. This is my 2018 Houston Marathon Recap!



I ran the Houston Marathon last year, it was my very first marathon.  It was such a fun time, I signed up again as soon as early bird entry opened up.
ABB 5k
I chose to run the ABB 5k on the day before the marathon.  I figured since I had to be in Houston to pick up my packet, I might as well use it for my shakeout run.  The temps were mighty chilly that morning.  I bundled up and headed in early to pick up my packet.  After I dropped my bag (and jacket) off at the bag drop, I was very happy to see the convention center was open to wait in.

15 minutes prior to race start, I headed out to use the port-a-cans and line up.  I chose to line up with the 11 minute mile group in an attempt to keep my pace super easy.  They sang the Star Spangled Banner and we were off right on time!

I had to do a bit of bobbing and weaving as there were several walkers who lined up ahead of me.  Within a half mil…
